Tzai released a free collection of 1800 cymbal samples recorded in 24Bit WAV format, using various equipment.
I’ve been sampling and gathering samples since . . . well . . . I had a Mac SE, Performer v2, Emu, Mirage, Roland S-550, Akai S900, and Passport Alchemy . . . so that gives you and idea of how long. I did my best to weed out the dupes and anything that was copy-protected in anyway.
